I don't think that's a really abnormal amount of quakes as there are a lot of them that go unnoticed even to the people that are really close by(1-2
mag events). People have been saying the Pacific Northwest, Southern California and the Midwestern US are overdue for large quakes for quite some
time. I think it's something that's really smart to keep in the back of your mind and be ready for but it's also something that could happen the next
second or 100 years from now.
Preparedness is the thing that emphasis should be placed on, if you live in a brick home or apt building you need to get the hell out as fast as
possible once the shaking starts, otherwise, hunker down under something solid - as in a tornado situation - and hope you can ride it out. Keeping
extra water on hand is especially important, don't put bleach or other drop-ins in your toilet resivior for example as that could be all you have for
awhile in a worse case scenario.
Parts of Europe I think are more overdue than we are as there is a major fault that runs through Turkey and into Greece that is known to produce
really big quakes and hasn't for quite some time. Indonesia, as always, is really susceptible to big geological events just because of it's location
and has really been getting hammered for the last 6 years. Despite what the USGS and other respected entities have been saying - there hasn't been an
increase in earthquake or volcanic activity, that it's just being reported more or there's more equipment to monitor it - it seems to me at least that
the Earth has been increasingly restless.
Just looking at tsunamis there have been 5 events in the past 6 years and I really don't remember any for quite awhile before that. I consider myself
a just look at the facts kind of guy but there have been 3 in Indonesia, 1 that was propagated in Chile, and one that hit American Samoa in that time
Oh, and as far as earthquake dreams, I have had one 3 times where I woke up and looked at the USGS site and saw that there was a 9.5 mag quake right
at the bend of Western South America at the Northern end of Chile on Nov 6th - I remember looking at a calendar each time and seeing the day but not
